Oscar Peterson – The More I See You

Just leaving this here to say I absolutely adore this album. It swings, it has the blues, and it’s so impeccably done that it oughta be in every collection, post-haste.

Released in 1995, it was the first album made since his stroke in 1993. I read somewhere that he never fully recovered use of his left hand, but in listening to this record with the good headphones on, there’s no sign at all of anything amiss.

First, the players:

Oscar Peterson – piano
Clark Terry – flugelhorn
Benny Carter – alto saxophone
Ray Brown – double bass
Lorne Lofsky – guitar
Lewis Nash – drums

And the tracks?

In A Mellow Tone
Gee Baby, Ain’t I Good To You
On The Trail
When My Dream Boat Comes Home
Rons Blues
For All We Know
Blues For Lisa
Squatty Roo
The More I See You

Any questions? Haha I thought not! Love love love love LOVE.

    I recently gave my Great Aunt his 75th birthday CD – can’t recall if any of these tracks made it onto that list, but it’s Oscar, so it’s good either way!
